Tampa Wedding Photographer Mike Zawadzki provides a memorable and customized photographic experience for all clients. We currently work in the Gulf Coast areas of Florida including Tampa, St. Petersburg, Bradenton, and Sarasota. Our specialties include Weddings, Elopements, Portraits, Headshots, Couples/Anniversaries, and Family Sessions. Originally from New Jersey, we often travel back to the North East for jobs, and are also available for travel worldwide. We are eager to meet you there.
We believe it is important for you to be comfortable with your wedding photographers on your wedding day, so our goal is to not only show up on your wedding day with a camera to an unfamiliar face. Most of our clients hire us for an engagement session so we can meet each other before the big day. It's a great way to break the ice and get to know each other. However if you are traveling from out of the area, we also make sure to have an online video conference to accomplish a similar goal.
Your wedding is the most important day of your life, and we treat it as such. Being an independent studio allows us to truly focus on the love between our couples, and all of the small details that convey this true connection. You will notice our images combine both the traditional style that make your parents happy, and the modern more intimate "unposed" look that we prefer ourselves. When you hire us, you are hiring fun photographers who are dedicated to their craft in a very careful way. This isn't just "taking some photos" for us, it is a professional dedication that we pour our hearts into. We consider every single wedding from our smallest to our largest, to be equally as important.
In the age of the iPhone many people forget just how special and important it can be to hire a professional for family photographs. We appreciate the technology, convience, and quality of mobile phones and admittedly use them semi-regularly for our own little moments in life, but we also understand that there is no replacement for expertly crafted images. The days of matching white shirts and blue jeans awkwardly posed on the floor are long gone. Instead we capture organic interactions, showing the special connection between family members. Whether it’s just “mommy/daddy and me” or the whole family, we provide a creative experience from start to finish delivering a unique product that far exceeds a few “nice” pictures. The full digital galleries and keepsakes we offer ensure that your family’s story will be memorialized in a way that goes above and beyond everyday snapshots.
When not photographing people, we love to explore and capture the places we travel to. From stunning cityscapes to the Aurora Borealis in Norway, places around the world provide visual fulfillment. Someday we hope to combine our passion of capturing moments with our desire to travel the world by photographing destination elopements and weddings.
We strive to provide top quality information and resources for those interested in photography. On our blog you will find a variety of informative posts on photography techniques, advice, and equipment. While there are plenty of highly technical reviews available online, our reviews and advice will focus on the practical real-world experience of using photographic equipment. We genuinely believe in community over competitoin, and love to share our wisdom.
We have teamed up with Tara Tomlinson Photography in Sarasota and offer a variety of classes, workshops, and personal 1-on-1 instruction that cover: camera operation basics, lighting, image editing, and branding. We have a generously sized classroom with a fully functional photography studio. Or if you prefer to learn outdoors, we can meet at any local park or beach of your choice!
